Foreword 



Now on the threshold of a world of uncertainity, tenseness, 
upheavals, and revolutionary concepts, todays college graduate 
faces a challenge never before demanded. The situation calls for 
a brave stand, reflective thinking, sound judgement, and intelli- 
gent action. 

In order to meet these challenges the 1958 graduate must 
draw a true perspective. He must see the world as a whole, and 
visualize an endless universe opening up, realizing that man is 
so infinitesimal a part that he seems almost stationary. He must 
cherish the fine traditions of the past, but at the same time he 
must keep pace with progress. 

It is our fervent hope that these subsuquent challenges will 
be met and conquered; in short, that Durfee Tech's Class of '58' 
will triumph.

Dedication 



To Leslie Briggs Coombs, our highly esteemed President, we respectfully 
dedicate this 1958 issue of Alethea, marking his last year of active administra- 
tion at Bradford Durfee College of Technology. 

In the past, constant vigilance and conscientious application on his part 
have resulted in outstanding achievement, as witness the development of our 
institution of learning under his tenure. In the future, as he takes on emeritus 
status, he can be relied upon to aid his successor in any way requested to 
further enhance education and life at Bradford Durfee College of Technology. 

We, the class of 1958, extend to him our best wishes for a long, happy 
retirement.

President's Message 



Once again it is my privilege io contribute to the College Year 
Book. Over the years I have enjoyed very much the rather intimate 
contact with the seniors. My successor, undoubtedly will find the same 
satisfaction. Since, like yourselves, I am also "graduating" this year, 
this message will be my last. The fact, however, that I shall remain 
on the rolls of the College for a time as President-Emeritus makes 
certain the continuance of my keen interest ir^ your success after 
commencement. 

These are trying and difficult times the world over. Yet there is 
no reason to approach them with anything but high courage. The 
era ahead will, in my opinion, be a very interesting one with definite 
challenges to all. Since you are all well equipped to meet these chal- 
lenges you will have no fear. I know there are many among you who 
will contribute largely to the welfare of our country. 

As the years go by, especially as you become more securely 
established in society, I urge you to continue in close touch with the 
College. Those who come after you will need and appreciate your 
active support. While it might be said that the first stage in the "new 
look" for the* Bradford Durfee College of Technology has been com- 
pleted, onething is certain, there is yet much to be done if the College 
is to be fully recognized in the world of education. This may mean 
a certain amount of sacrifice on your part which I am sure will be 
generously made. What particular need will be indicated, I will not 
attempt to prophesy. We will let those who come after us shoulder 
that responsibility. 



In closing, permit me to extend to you my best wishes for your 
continued success in the days to come. 

Leslie B. Coombs

PROGRESS . . . PRODUCT OF EXPERIENCE 

You found it true during your years of training at Bradford Durfee College 
of Technology. You'll find it even more evident as you progress in your 
career in the textile field. 

Progress . . . achievement . . . grow in proportion to your experience, your con- 
tinuous opportunity to apply your knowledge and talents to everyday doings! 

The axiom applies equally to companies as to individuals. Such famous dye- 
stuff products as the Solophenyls, Cuprophenyls, Erio Chromes, the revolu- 
tionary, new Irgalans and, of course Mitin durable mothproofing were de- 
veloped as the result of nearly a century of Geigy research in the textile field. 

As your own career progresses, you will find it helpful to rely on names 
like Geigy . . . names which represent progress through experience!
